Honey Nut Snack Mix

The calendar is telling me it is fall, even if it doesn’t feel like it outside.  It might still be hot out, but my internal clock is ready to switch over to fall.  What better way than to start in the kitchen.  This Honey Nut Snack Mix always reminds me of fall!

I love how all of the flavors and textures in the snack mix come together.  The crunchiness of the cereal and nuts are perfect with the chewy cranberries and softened oats.

This snack mix comes together easily and only has to bake 20 minutes.  The hardest part is waiting for it to cool!  Once you gather all of the ingredients, melt the butter, sugar and honey, stir the stuff all together and bake it.  It’s that easy!

This Honey Nut Snack Mix is perfect in lunchboxes or as an after school snack.  It is also great to set around in bowls when you have people over.  I set it out on Halloween because we have a lot of guests in and out because our house is in a very popular area for Trick-or-Treaters.  It would be perfect for a tailgate or even something to munch on while waiting for that turkey at Thanksgiving.

Make a batch of this snack mix this weekend.  It will definitely remind you it’s fall even if the thermometer says differently!
